Women tend to experience excessive development of facial hair due to higher levels of androgen hormones (testosterone) than usual. Also known as Hirsutism, such excess growth of hair near the mouth and chin can be effectively treated with the key ingredient – Eflornithine hydrochloride.
Eflora Cream is dermatologically approved to address a specific concern – the excessive growth of unwanted facial hair, known as hirsutism, in women. This medical intervention offers a targeted and localized approach to managing the growth of facial hair, which can be distressing and impact self-esteem for affected individuals. The active ingredient in this cream, Eflornithine hydrochloride is a selective and irreversible inhibitor of the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase. Ornithine decarboxylase is a critical enzyme in the polyamine biosynthesis pathway that is essential for cell proliferation and differentiation, including hair follicle development and hair shaft elongation. By inhibiting this enzyme’s activity, Eflora aims to interrupt the process of hair growth, leading to a reduction in the rate of hair growth in the applied areas.
The application of Eflora cream involves a simple and non-invasive procedure. Patients are advised to cleanse and dry the affected areas of the face before applying a thin layer of the cream to the skin. The cream is meant to be gently massaged into the skin until it gets absorbed. This process is recommended to be repeated twice daily, with an interval of at least eight hours between applications.
